Fun on the farm with faith and family

Procrastination

Leave a comment

How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you? Joshua 18:3

Procrastination.  I really don’t like that word probably because I’m quite guilty of it and the word alone is convicting.  Most of us procrastinate on some level with some area of our life.  Whether it be cleaning out the fridge, excercise, or calling that friend we haven’t seen for a while, we all fall victim to our own procrastination at times.  I have a whole slough of excuses too:  “The fridge will just get messed up again, why bother”;
I’m to tired to exercise today”;” my friend is probably mad at me anyway”.  But did you know that to procrastinate shows a lack of discipline, poor stewardship of time and, in some cases, disobedience to God?  The first thing I’ll be doing today is praying for the focus to clean and organize my fridge, the energy to hop on my treadmill, the courage to call a friend who might be mad at me, and the discipline to follow through with each.  God wants to bless us but we must do our part to reach out for those blessings.

If you want to make an easy job seem harder, just keep putting of doing it.

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
